Dell 1355cnw network printer

Postby sloan » Wed Jan 11, 2012 11:01 pm

So, I recently got this dell 1355cnw printer. I have it setup for wireless so I'm trying to use it as a network printer. When I go to add a printer, it shows up...but asks for a driver. All my research turned up nothing as far as linux drivers for this printer and I had no luck choosing Generic Printer.
So I'm just trying to see if anyone has had any luck with this or any ideas.

Update for anyone who finds themselves in the same position as I did.

I'm able to use my Windows only printer now. I run Windows in a VM and share my printer from there using Chrome and Google Cloud Print.
Then I installed this package to allow me to print to my clould printer from linux... http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/cups-cloud-print/

So far works perfect...just as if the printer was setup native in linux.

well done; good work;

OpenOffice says

http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Dell/Dell-1235cn

the foo2zjs driver works mostly for the 1235cn, than seems very similar to your 1355cnw

http://www.openprinting.org/driver/foo2zjs

.............would you be able to do the linux community a service and install this open-source driver on your Mint system and see if it drives your printer?

......it would be a valuable contribution

Installed and tried the foo2zjs driver...it didn't work.

Thanks for the info though...didn't hurt to give it a shot.

Please try http://foo2hbpl.rkkda.com/ again.. It has now support for the Dell 1355 and the Xerox WorkCentre 6015

Great!!! I can confirm this driver works now. The only problem I see is a need for some color correction. Blue prints like purple.
